At Mount Pleasant, we aim to promote a healthy lifestyle for the children. We do this through many different methods at school and recognise the importance of ensuring all children have access to water throughout the day, in order to support their learning. A key part of our approach to learning about a healthy lifestyle is providing a healthy dinner, via Chartwells, our catering team. We also encourage children to include healthy choices in their lunch boxes. As a result of our work towards healthy living, the school has received 5 Healthy Leaf Awards, recognising the efforts we have made.
In addition to promoting healthy lifestyles, we also aim to provide parents with support in terms of healthcare, signposting key resources and offering support where necessary. We have been provided with the following poster, which highlights the importance of checking children for headlice on a regular basis:
